There was a mockup for a dark australis theme set to become the private mode theme

 

I usually don't like dark themes (browsers, OS, software, etc.,), however that one looks really good.

I would love to see it become a reality. I'll update if it ever lands in the ux or nightly branches.

 

Also, beta changelogs are up, aurora is still missing.

Does australis still allow the tabs to be at the top of the web page or are they now forced to the top of the browser?

Tabs on bottom is actually disabled in Nightly or Aurora now I think.

Damn. Give with one hand and take with the other lol. Fingers crossed there'll be a mod or extension to sort that by the time it's released.

It might only be disabled in UX, I personally keep my tabs in the titlebar (screen real estate!) using an addon, so tabs on bottom is disabled for me.

New cache system for firefox being played with, builds available for testing on the page.

 

Seems to just make a 'cache2' folder and do its business in there, not sure how this will affect CCleaner (if it ever lands on stable....)

 

 

 

Edit:

 

A recent nightly changed the look of the in-page find bar

 

new:

Edit:

 

Also seems the find bar will be moved to the top

@Winapp2.ini is post-21882-13785100275978_thumb.jpg

the highlighted area all Firefox or just mobile?

If all (edit that's why you pay attention when using Swype™) so is that why ccleaner was causing some people issues?

AFAIK that's just a mobile setting. The direction Firefox Desktop has been heading, they're more likely to cut out options (see: advanced js options, etc) than add them :(

Sorry, I think I was unclear. I meant the bug in local storage pre version 23. The option is from a add-on

oh, perhaps. I've been doing the nightly change threads for 2 months now, so I don't really recall each change :( (Over three thousand individual ones so far)

move nightly users to Balrog (Balrog is the new backend updater - pretty sure it's something server side but i don't know the implications)

On Australis, the upcoming UI shift for firefox

Oh geez, it's looking increasingly Metro-esque. Is it just me that's sick of every website and software going down the ultra dumbed down flat big button route <_<

 

Oh and does the dark theme properly exist yet or has it been dropped?

Looks more like Opera's Speed Dial to me.

They say Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I don't mind the metro style but it would be nice to have a classic skin option to keep everyone happy.

Oh I don't mind them changing it (much), just wish developers would have a little originality instead of, en masse, following the crowd.

No info on that but I'll do some digging.

 

Ux isn't actually metro-ish imo.. looks more like the current Chrome for windows interface (don't tell the developers that.. they'll tell you Australis has CURVES and chrome has ANGLES!)

 

I actually think it looks nice but they've gutted a lot of functionality and customization and a lot of users are upset. I'll post some screenshots from the ux build later

Not so far as options, Shane, at least not in so many words.

 

They've merged the back/forward buttons to the URL bar and bound the favorites star to it as well - both changes many who customize the ui aren't fond of. They've disabled tabs on bottom, among other things as well.

 

JDPower: I've asked on MozillaZine and the consensus is that it never got passed mockup stages, but that it also wouldn't be difficult to implement as a theme.

Excellent. Only one interface region needs to be capable of housing the tabs. Less code, more performance. Also saves time, as they don't need to do QA and unit testing for both interface variations.

I think the number of people who actually customized this would be pretty small. I'd also wager the majority of the group are capable of installing an extension that would revert those changes. That's the benefit of a rich, extensible API: you don't need to include a thousand different customization options.

 

From a developer's standpoint, we power users are the worst.

Thanks greatly for checking, hopefully someone will pick it up and run with it as a theme. I've not bothered with themes for a couple of years (with the exception of a Persona theme), but that I WOULD use!
